I admit to being in a truly crappy mood. This week I've been at school a lot, and I've been so spoiled by being home with Mike all summer - working on our own schedules, having time to work out daily. We've been eating very well, and have had time to prepare terrific lowfat foods.. it's been ideal, since we both began to work out and focus on health right after we got married in May.
Now things are speeding up again, so it's a time of transition. Pressures. Deadlines. Weird schedules... I want a nap :) I know, it'll take time.
Today I took some of our terrific roasted sweet potato soup, and added salt after heating it up. At home this is not a problem, as we only use Morton lite salt. At work, it is regular salt. Now my feet and hands are swollen like sausages. Blech. I won't make that mistake again! I've been enjoying using lots of lime and lemon and other seasonings in lieu of salt. Plan, woman, plan!
I am also whiny and disgruntled about a political incident at work. Why do people need to buttress their esteem with power displays? I felt disenchanted, and there's nothing to do but suck it up. Well, and whine, there's always that (and I am such an expert at it, too!)
I came home planning to climb on the elliptical, only to realize I felt totally achy and exhausted. How much ya wanna bet that was a combination of the hands & feet & sausage, and my internalized, inexpressible, anger at the work sitch? Not taking bets. But Mike is a good and supportive guy - I am so very lucky there. Insert sappy newlywed sentiments, all meant and re-realized daily.
Ah well, Scarlett - tomorrow's another day. Hopefully I will get some major work done (rather than the interminable meeting perplex) and ... no effing salt. Well, and more water.
